This field guide covers all key game and nature reserves of South Africa. The book is structured regionally and, within each region, the parks featured under the following headings: brief history; location (with map); geology, landscapes and climate; vegetation types; fauna (most notably mammals, birds and reptiles); highlights of the park; and best times to visit. Full-colour images support the texts and detailed maps of each reserve are annotated to indicate places of interest or where it's most likely one will see particular animals. At the back of Stuarts' Field Guide to National Parks & Nature Reserves of South Africa is a concise pictorial Identification Guide featuring the birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, flowers and trees that are most commonly seen in the reserves. This is a handy, informative, must-have guide to South Africa's famously diverse and richly populated game and nature parks.
